Happy Retirement to Dr. Mary Corretti!

Special note of gratitude to Dr. Mary Corretti of Johns Hopkins Cardiology who will retire at the end of this month 

after decades of service to the Echocardiography lab. She will be missed. Dr. Corretti has taught a generation of cardiologists at Hopkins and the University of Maryland. And while she is retiring from clinical medicine, she will continue to focus on echocardiography education and mentoring Women Cardiologists. Mary Concetta Corretti, M.D., Associate Professor of Medicine | Johns Hopkins Medicine   

I thank you for your commitment to the Chapter and wish everyone a great July 4th weekend!
